ITEMS ARE LISTED LEFT TO RIGHT, BENEATH EACH PHOTO

1. ANYTHING YOU SAY, Supreme Magic, Originated by Len Belcher. Mentalist, this is a strong Mental Trick, if you take the time. Remember the game Clue? This would be similar. 3 Spec play a role in a Murder. 5 Cards with Murder weapons are laid face up on the table (you can substitute for real weapons instead of the cards). 3 cards are shown to have the characters (Witness, Body, Murderer). These cards are placed face down on the table, so no one knows the order. Each spectator is given a small instruction card, which are all different. You can be blindfolded or go out of the room. Each spectator chooses a Character card, without revealing it to the others. These are face down, so no one knows what the other holds. Each one refers to his instruction card. This tells him which of the weapons to take. Now the 3 Spec conceal all of the cards. You re-enter the room and ask some silly irrelevant questions. You then reveal which weapon each has. Then you reveal the mystery - "You were the victim of this terrible murder - You are The Body"; to another Spec "You saw the Crime committed with poison - You are The Witness", to the last Spec "And you are the Murderer"! All of them give up their character cards and your solution is seen correct. You get everything you need, all of the cards, and the original instructions. $15.00

2. CRAZY SPOTS, Tenyo. A Black and Yellow Spot change to Red and blue. You can pass it out for examination. No Instructions. $4.50

Simply add the omega gimmick to any Blue Back Bicycle Deck. Under your control, the shiner falls out of the Omega Gimmick Card, which reveals the selected card. You could also use it to reveal a color or a card or something written on a piece of paper. You can use the Omega Gimmick anytime a shiner would create a miracle The mirror goes back up into the card where it is hidden. $10.00
